In 2016, hundreds of local government practitioners and leaders from 40 countries gathered in Bilbao to endorse the Basque Declaration, outlining new pathways for European cities and towns to create productive, sustainable and resilient cities for a liveable and inclusive Europe, and supporting a range of commitments, including adaptation to climate change and disaster risk reduction.
Two years on, Bilbao returns to this central agenda, bringing city practitioners together with researchers to discuss and learn about practical approaches to building climate resilience. The cities of Paris (France) and Bilbao will open a dialogue with their peers from Zadar (Croatia), Padova and Alba (Italy), Almada (Portugal), Athens (Greece), London (UK), Strasbourg (France) and Warsaw (Poland).
